I’ve never taken my eyesight for granted. It’s a valued gift, to be sure, that not only impacts my art museum work, but brings joy in immeasurable ways. In the galleries, colors – resplendent in both the Art Deco Glass and Molten exhibitions – are more vivid than I had previously observed.
I’ve always been a reader – books, magazines, recipes, and blogs. Typically, I learn something, and frequently I’m inspired to try something new. The same holds true for a file I started many years ago titled “Exhibition Ideas.” Each time I discover an interesting phrase, an exceptional exhibition title, an artist biography, or sometimes just random articles, they are filed for future reference. When it’s time for a new exhibition, I start there.
